Partnership Case from Slots City Foundation: Generator for Oleksandrivska Hospital
“When the hospital department asked us for a huge generator, we realized that we couldn’t handle it ourselves,” recalls Andriy Turyhin, a volunteer at Slots City Foundation. He and his volunteer friends have long been helping Oleksandrivska Hospital: bringing medicines, purchasing clothing and supplies for patients, primarily veterans. This time, a doctor approached Andriy requesting a generator that could ensure uninterrupted operation of an entire block.
“We consulted with volunteer partners from the network of funds that we have formed over two years of work, and we engaged the Charity Fund ‘Kyshchentsi’ in this project,” says Artem Stohniy, director of the SlotsCity Foundation. “Thanks to this partnership, a large 250 kW generator has already been delivered to Kyiv from the Netherlands, and we are currently preparing it for commissioning: conducting technical maintenance and connecting it to the hospital’s power grid,” Artem says.
Upon arrival, the generator was received by Yevhen Batsenko, head of the polytrauma department. SlotsCity Foundation has been working systematically with his department since 2022: volunteers gather the needs of doctors and patients every month, purchase aid, and deliver it to the hospital. According to the doctor, after installation, the generator will be used for the uninterrupted operation of the hospital’s food block and for instrument sterilization.
The wide network of partnerships and collaborations with fellow volunteers is a hallmark of the Foundation’s work. “We have partners with whom we collaborate in various areas,” says Artem Stohniy. Among them are funds like Ukraine.Pivdenn.Volya and Zampotech, with whom Slots City Foundation repairs and complements vehicles and other equipment for the Armed Forces. With entrepreneur friends, the Foundation repairs and complements watercraft for defenders, and with the Vector-Optical Laboratory (VOL), it repairs drones for the military free of charge.
Together with domestic inventors, volunteers are working on technical developments for the army. Recently, they procured parts for the serial production of missile systems, remote-controlled tank machine guns, and buggies. Also, Slots City Foundation volunteers processed over 250 individual requests from military personnel in a year and sent over 900 transfers of targeted humanitarian aid.
